    Return the device and get new one? It might not recognize your writing, but should still show the line while you are writing.

    but when i change back to the current date, is not working again.

    So to get the Note 3 to recognize handwriting you have to set an incorrect date? That's not very useful. Wonder how long it will take for a fix for this bug?

    I'm having the same problem (With a spanish model)

    It works fine when setting the date back a couple of days. But it doesn't if I put it back right.

    Any ideas?

    I also had this problem

    Im in England on EE

    What was extra strange was that the other type of handwriting recognition works fine - hover over a text box and you will see a small pen symbol pop up, this brings up a different writing box and it still worked fine.

    Changing the date seems to have fixed the problem with the keyboard though

    I try to fix the problem by the following step:
    - uncheck automatic date and time
    - Set date back to 28 sep
    - test handwriting to text , and it's work
    - then set date back to current date (don't check Automatic date and time)
    It's temporary solution.
    .....it can't fix the problem. That's still.

    It's true. The other one works fine. But it is not always available. I hope they'll fix it soon.
